JavaScript Futures: ES2017 and the Road Ahead


Development teams are now using the exciting—and extensive—new JavaScript features available within ES6. Yet, as adoption has spread and projects have adapted, the language continues to evolve and expand under Ecma TC39. Last year, two features were quietly added for ES2016. In January, the committee finalized another handful of improvements for the release of ES2017.

One thing is certain: the JavaScript community is not slowing down! Investigate the new and proposed features of JavaScript. Understand the ES.Next maturity stages and the TC39 review process. Most of all, become empowered to prepare for what lies ahead.
